A refreshing, interesting combination of turkey, pasta and fruit with a lightly sweet dressing makes this a family favorite. I found the recipe in an old church cookbook years ago. —Bernice Smith, Sturgeon Lake, Minnesota

  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup halved seedless red grapes
